The Second ROS Workshop (Advanced)

The ROS Workshop II:

Project workers of DigiTally hosted the second ROS workshop (advanced) in the Mechatronic Lab, Aalto University, on 14th March 2023. This workshop is a prime vision of the first one. Participants get a chance to code, set up the turtlebots step by step and control it through an obstacle course.

In addition, the first draft of Turtlebot 3 documentation is ready. We used it as an instruction during the workshop and debugged it with participants together. We will continue approaching the final vision of it and other documentation of the digital garage soon.

For sustainable reasons, we 3D printed the holding pieces and chose cardboard to build the obstacle course. They will be reused in other workshops and building garages.

Finally, students controlled the turtlebot by their code go through the obstacle course. It tests the participant’s ability and skill to control the robot. There are three challenges alien with this course:

  • one narrow-down area
  • one area with an obstacle in the middle
  • a wavy area that is only 4 cm wider than the turtlebot
